Simple and free to enter, the prestigious Brilliant Business Awards are the highlight of the business year in Hammersmith & Fulham. They not only acknowledge business success and achievement – shortlisted and winning businesses also say they help attract customers and help you grow your business.

They’ve been described by past winners as ‘an inspiration to other parts of London to recognise hard work and entrepreneurship’.

The awards are open to all businesses and organisations in Hammersmith & Fulham and we’re looking for potential Oscar-winning businesses, organisations, entrepreneurs and social enterprises – and that could be you.

The benefits

Space City Productions win Best Local Employer at the 2017 H&F Brill Bizz Awards

Last year, Space City Productions was named the Best Local Employer at the H&F Brill Bizz Awards.

“It was a great honour and surprise to be named best Local Employer especially considering the other great companies in the running,” said Amii van Dunn, CEO of Space City Productions (pictured above, right).

“We are a small team of 14 people and the awards are a great way to showcase and support the smaller businesses in H&F. We’re looking forward to entering again this year.”

The UK’s most productive advertising production company-per-head has been delivering TV, online and radio commercials since 1992, from its offices in Blythe Road, Hammersmith.

It has produced adverts for companies including Nestlé, Asda, Moonpig, GoCompare, Wowcher and MoneySupermarket.
